Trisha Yearwood’s Weight Loss Debuts At ACM Awards

Trisha Yearwood’s weight loss took center stage at the ACM Awards when the singer presented an award on Sunday evening.

Yearwood has been making headlines with her new venture, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, on the Food Network, as well as her bestselling cook books.

But the Grammy winner’s culinary skills took a backseat at the awards show when Yearwood showed off her slimmed-down physique.

Trisha Yearwood’s spokesperson stated of the singer’s weight loss:

“Trisha has always been a successful, shapely bombshell. Recently she has taken her fitness routine to a new level.”

And not only has the new fitness routine been beneficial to Trisha’s health, it also helped her don the stunning body-hugging Stella McCartney dress during Sunday’s awards.

Yearwood revealed in February that she had been dieting and exercising, which allowed her to lost 20 pounds so far.

She added that she had been “doing very little sugar and occasionally I have the mac and cheese.”

Along with her appearance to present an award on Sunday, Yearwood’s husband, Garth Brooks, also took the stage to perform a tribute to Dick Clark alongside country legend George Strait.

Garth Brooks sang a rendition of his iconic song, “The Dance,” before singing harmony for Strait’s 1985 hit “The Cowboy Rides Away.”

Despite being incredibly successful in the 1990s, Trisha Yearwood hasn’t released a country album since 2007’s Heaven, Heartache and the Power of Love. The album peaked on the charts at No. 10 and reached 30 on the Billboard 22 albums chart. It was also given the highest praise of any previous album, including 1992’s Hearts in Armor.

But despite the album’s success, Trisha Yearwood has yet to release another album. She did reveal last year that she is not currently signed to a record label, though she is working on new music.
